    Anyone else hit "the lake" (or the ocean if you have one) ??

    We spend our weekends in the summer on Lake Ouachita here in Arkansas. It's a nice clear lake set in the middle of the Ouachita National Forrest so its not cluttered up with BS on the bank. Plenty of islands to camp on. At night all you can see are other peoples bonfires on the other islands and mainland....

    I grew up camping on the islands of this lake. Kinda reliving my childhood every time I go back out there...

    Nice place, nolt. Been there motorcycling a few times. Arkansas, especially Scenic 7 north, is one great looking state.

    I've been up there the last three summers for our company picnic. Love it up there. Great fishing too.

    7 is a neat road... from just east of Lake Ouachita it winds up through the Ouachitas then it flattens out a little bit in the Ark river valley, then it gets windey again as it heads up into the Ozarks. I think it basically just ends at the banks of Bull Shoals Lake on the northern border of the state.

    I'm not much of a ninja...

    I have an old ranger 350 w/ 150 merc. Love to fish and camp on the lakes around here. Not many islands here though. Did do that a couple of times on lake cumberland up white oak creek. Had a blast!!

    Great lake and the scenery is great. On the holidays in warm werther its full of BIG boats. The f'ing Ohio navy invades it bad. If you want to see TITS it's a great place to be though. 20 boats will tie up together and party. Girls get drunk and tops come off!!!

    That campfire shot is nice. I think the moon wins it though.

    I've done my fair share of boating in my lifetime, here is a picture of me boating somewhere in the middle of the ocean, I really don't know where.

    The only thing that comes close to my firearms passion.

    Got rid of this big boy a couple years ago and went to a 32ft cruiser and lakeside cabin within walking distance of the marina. Now we need to sell the cruiser and get into a regular runabout;

    We are the second boat from left & that's my beer gut in the black and red trunks.
